Spring Blooms (CLOSED)

Warm sun. Sweet freedom. Fragrant flowers. Defrost your winter-weary self and watch the magic of spring unfold with half a million blooms in The Garden and the galleries. At Newfields, the season begins with beautiful displays of orchids, along with small, outdoor floral gems. Then come the daffodils and hyacinths. Pansies, peonies, and cool-season veggies. Wildflowers in the woods. Don’t miss the crescendo, typically in April, when redbuds, dogwoods, and lilacs fill The Garden with a floral haze.

Our staff and volunteers planted 125,000 new bulbs for this year’s exhibition. Visit often to see new bursts of color and creativity (nature’s and our own) in displays and garden beds, and to discover take-home inspiration. Make sure to stop by the Beer Garden and let us freshen your drink. Then, stroll through the pop-up garden, a lush meadow flourishing with fritillaries–the perfect place to toast a new beginning. 

Following the direction of Governor Eric Holcomb and recommendations from the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH), the White River State Park (WRSP) Frank Lloyd Visitors Center and the IMAX Theater at the Indiana State Museum are temporarily closed beginning Mar. 17, in response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. In addition, all scheduled programs, activities, and events, including those in Military Park have been postponed or suspended during this period. 

This decision was made out of an abundance of caution, to protect the safety and health of our staff, volunteers and visitors. As the situation continues to unfold, a date to reopen and resume activities will be established, based on recommendations from ISDH.

As the Indianapolis Museum of Art has grown to become an internationally renowned museum, attention has turned toward increasing the emphasis on combining art with nature. The galleries are surrounded by gardens, water features, over a hundred acres of woodland filled with surprise and beauty. The campus itself is ideal for performances, afternoon walks, kite-flying, cloud-gazing, memory-making, new-idea-having. There’s a mansion to stage unforgettable events, restaurants for relaxing, bars for microbrews and friendships. Newfields is a setting where it’s easy to make connections of all sorts. Like no place else in Indianapolis.
